Sugarpill Burning Heart Quad Review & Swatches

Hey everyone. Today I have a review that has been a long time coming. I think in September last year (although it could have been longer) I bought all 3 of the Sugarpill palettes currently being sold. But can you believe I haven't even touched them until just now?! Shame on me! Being on a spending ban and all, I delved into my stash looking for hidden treasures to review and swatch and whaddya know! This little beauty popped up! 



 I decided to review the Burning Heart palette today - but if you'd like to see the other two (I'll probably review them regardless) let me know! 
The Burning Heart quad contains 4 fiery colours not for the faint of heart. These were on my lust list for a long time as a lover of colourful eyeshadows and I wasn't disappointed!




First of all, I'll start how I always start, packaging first!
The Sugarpill palettes are all housed the same. They come in cardboard sleeves with a cute design on the front and names of the eyeshadows on the back. The actual packaging itself is also made of cardboard, but believe me its sturdy stuff. In fact it feels a lot sturdier than some of the Sleek/MUA palettes made of plastic. I feel like this would be travel friendly although it might start to get tatty. The design on the front is different and memorable. Its not my favourite design in the world but I can still appreciate it. There is a decent sized mirror and the back shows the eyeshadows layout and names. 








OK OK OK, lets get onto the eyeshadows! Swatch time!






Flamepoint is a very vibrant orange. Fantastic pigmentation and blendability. You can build up a very true to pan colour with just a couple of applications. It isn't chalky in the slightest and is very easy to blend.

Buttercupcake is a matte yellow and as far as yellow eyeshadows go, this is pretty impressive! This has probably taken number one spot as favourite yellow eyeshadow. While it is pigmented, its a little powdery and I find it overly easy to blend thus, sheers out quite quicky. However it is incredibly buildable and easy to get a very vibrant and pigmented yellow on the lid.

Love + is a crazy red. Its probably one of the most pigmented reds I have ever come across. It is very true to pan, blendable and just crazy pigmented. I'm really happy I have this as sometimes the red in my Lime Crime Chinadoll palette can come across too "deep" so this is a very nice true red that I'm incredibly happy to have!

Poison Plum is a lovely pigmented purple. I would have liked this to be deeper as I always like to have at least one "dark" shade to put in the crease, but I found this too light to add depth to the crease. Obviously that is personal preference and as far as purples go, this is very vibrant and unique to my collection. Even though it appears to have shimmer in the pan, it comes across relatively matte on the lid with a slight sheen to it. Again its very blendable and delivers incredible colour payoff, achieving a very true to pan colour.

All of the eyeshadows are very pigmented and are honestly a pleasure to use. The pigmentation is just unparalleled, I have nothing like it apart from my Lime Crime palettes. The quality is just lovely and it was incredibly easy to swatch and get good photos of these. They are very blendable which is a pleasant surprise as mattes do have a tendency to be stiff and dry.The pans are HUGE. They are almost the size of a MAC blusher and honestly, it'll be hard to make your way through these! Incredible value for money when it comes to the weight and amount you are getting. 

Sugarpill eyeshadows are well worth getting particularly if you are an MUA or someone who likes playing with colour! They are quite affordable especially as they are excellent quality and the pans are HUGE! You can purchase Sugarpill from their official website here for $34.00 and Sugarpill ships worldwide. If you'd prefer to get your goodies from a UK shop, you can buy from Cocktail Cosmetics here, or Genie Cosmetics here all for around £25.
